WET Systems specialize in the development of tailor-made, sustainable solutions to your water quality challenges, with ecologically engineered, nature-based and constructed wetland technologies at the core.
Wetland and Ecological Treatment Systems take advantage of the natural contaminant transformations, energy flows and material balances that occur in wetlands and other aquatic ecosystems, only in a more optimized and engineered way, in order to remove pollutants from water.
By working with Mother Nature (rather than against her), wastewater treatment processes can be engineered to operate with significantly lower use of fossil fuels, chemicals and mechanical equipment compared to conventional technologies. This translates to significant savings in operation and maintenance costs over the life of a system. These benefits often come at the cost of a bigger land area requirement; although through clever design, compact ecological systems are also possible, so it is always worth enquiring before ruling out a more sustainable solution.
With the primary goal of developing the most sustainable, reliable and robust solution for each project, WET Systems actively work with our partners to integrate eco-technologies with other treatment systems (such as activated sludge, MLE, trickling filters, DAF, membranes and mechanical processes). Through careful and sympathetic design, the advantages of various technologies can be harnessed to provide logical and efficient outcomes.
This page provides an overview of the various constructed wetland technologies that WET Systems specialize in.
